Ashdoc's movie review---Inkaar

Post by ashdoc on Fri Jan 18, 2013 2:07 pm

Sexual harassment of women---the raging topic of the day.....

And at the precisely right time when this topic is gaining prominence , comes the movie INKAAR....

Whether it is really sexual harassment of a woman depends on the atmosphere of the place and situation the woman is in.....

If the office the woman works in is a conservative place and the woman
is a conservative woman who wears only sarees or salwar kameez , then
even the slightest flirtation can be construed as sexual harassment.....

But what if the office the woman works in is a glamorous place full of
free mixing of the sexes and opening drinking together and dancing and
partying together and late night working together....

And what if the woman herself is a party animal who wears sexy hot
exposing clothes , has slept with men before marriage and opening flirts
with her colleagues---then what does construe sexual harassment of her
??

Where do you draw the thin red line ??

This is precisely the question put before Deepti Naval , a social worker
brought to take a decision in a charge of sexual harassment that has
been made by Chitrangada Singh on her boss Arjun Rampal.....

.....For both work in an advertising agency , a place full of free behavior between the sexes .

As Deepti sits to hear both sides of the case , the movie unfolds as a
series of flashbacks in which both sides describe their view of what
really was happening.....

.....And Arjun's view and Chitrangada's view of what happened in each situation is different from the other's.....

.....And both are intelligent people capable of convincing the
arbitrator that only their version of the event is correct and the
other's version is wrong....

But the matter is more complicated than that---for they have had an affair in the past which led to deep intimate relations....

And as if to further the complications both are now rivals in the same
organisation involved in a game of one upmanship with each other.....

And it is such complications which make a movie more worth watching.....

As the events of the past unfold in front of your eyes in flashbacks , so does the story begin to grip your attention.....

But whose version is true ?? Whom to believe ?? Chitrangada or Arjun ??
The accuser or the accused ?? For both give solid reasons for their
accusations on each other....

And what is the role of other persons working in the office in the story
?? And more importantly , what is their version of what really happened
?? For their testimony has an important bearing on the case as some of
the events described happened before their eyes....

And who is more popular among the office personnel ?? Chits or Arjun.....
Do other women in the office have had similar experiences with Arjun , or he is well liked and indeed loved among them is he ??

For answers to these questions watch the movie....

The triumph of the director Sudhir Mishra lies in making the person who
is guilty not really look like a villain in the end.....Indeed your
heart does feel sympathy for that person.....

And good movies are those with good endings.....so I feel....

Verdict---well worth the money spent...
